We’re here at Magic Kingdom because characters are returning for meet and greets today. We also have some park hopping planned to see what else we can find.
It’s a picture perfect day here in Magic Kingdom.
We love seeing the character water art made by cast members. Mike Wazowski would be so happy to be featured in this artwork in Tomorrowland.
The first character we found today was Snow White. She is now meeting guests on the Town Square Theater Porch. The times were listed on the My Disney Experience app.
While walking through Fantasyland we found Peter Pan trying to pull the Sword in the Stone. He is not doing set meet and greets at this time. You can find him roaming throughout Fantasyland stopping for photos and interacting with guests.
At Agrabah Bazaar in Adventureland, Jasmine and Aladdin were back meeting guests. Meet and greet times are listed on the My Disney Experience app.
We had some time before we could park hop to Disney’s Hollywood Studios, we decided to stop by Disney Springs and see if we could find anything new.
A Sox plush from the movie “Lightyear” was available in World of Disney. He was previously found in Disneyland.
Toothgnasher and Toothgrinder from “Thor: Love and Thunder” have made their way to World of Disney. This plush set was too cute to resist. Have you seen the new movie?
In the Marketplace Co-Op, at The Dress Shop on Cherry Tree Lane, there is a new Princess Aurora dress. This dress is inspired by the “Make it pink! Make it blue!” scene from “Sleeping Beauty.” This dress was previously only available in Disneyland.
In The Ganachery, there is an exclusive Annual Passholder Orange Bird Ganache Square you can purchase.
Here is a better look at the Orange Bird exclusive Annual Passholder Ganache Square. The design features a photo of the Annual Passholder magnet which is now available.
We spotted a Transportation Ticket tee in the DisneyStyle store. On the tee, it states, “Allows guest unlimited use today and tonight of the Walt Disney World Transportation System (Monorail, Steamboats, Motor Trams).”
There was also an EPCOT Center tee featuring SMRT-1, a robot character found at CommuniCore’s Computer Central area. We’re loving all these new retro tees that have been released.
It was 2 p.m., so we could finally park hop to Disney’s Hollywood Studios.
Today, the Star Wars Launch Bay was doing a soft opening for the return of the meet and greets. The characters officially return on July 17. Guests will be able to meet Chewbacca, BB-8, and Darth Vader when it reopens.
Today, Darth Vader was meeting guests during the soft opening. You can see more of our interaction with Darth Vader here.
Chewbacca was also meeting guests today during the soft opening. We will have to come back on the 17 to meet BB-8. We hope you enjoyed following along with our day. We had a great day meeting so many characters, and we’re so glad they are back.
